Quickie DIY: Vintage Tangerine Orange Clip Earrings Modernized

This project started with a pair of tangerine orange "fireworks" style clip-on earrings that I got at an estate sale.
 
 
 
As you can see, the beads are on head and eye pins that are secured to a circular metal screen backing.

They have clip on backs that are corroded! Yuck!!!

 
I don't know exactly when they were made. I suspect 50s / 60s era.

 
They were made in Japan.

 
I cut off the clip on backs and epoxied on new silver pierced backs.

 
Good as new! Saint Salvage strikes again!
